*Birth story?
Bryce was breech and I had placenta previa so I already had a CS scheduled. Two weeks before my due date I was at my weekly appointment and after my OB checked me she said "I feel his foot, you are 4cm dilated, and you need to make your way to the hospital now.". So a little freaked out called DH to meet me at the hospital. Go there and the OB on call came in after I was all hooked up and said that I had 2 options since it looked like I did not have placenta previa after all and he could 1. stick with my scheduled CS or 2. try to turn DS from the outside and see what happens. After talking with DH we decided to try to get him to turn and have a normal delivery instead of a CS. They did an ultrasound to find out where his head and butt where and then the OB used his hands (and arm muscles) pushed on my stomach until he got him turned. It hurt like nobody's business and I was sore for the next couple of days. Didn't go in to active labor and they sent me home that night. Literally a week later started having contractions after lunch at work. Called the doctor's office and they told me to head to the hospital. I thankfully felt no pain from any of my contractions only the tightening and after the epidural (probably could have done without it but I'm not a fan of pain) had DS at 5:43am on June 5th.
*Anything Else you would like to add? Nope think that about covers it. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

AmylovesColts replied to VicsEandJ's response:
Oh I was stuck in the hospital a couple of hours afterwards just to make sure everything was okay. I was SO hungry because my doctor's appointment that day was at 3 so I hadn't had anything to eat since lunch and didn't get out of the hospital until almost 9pm! We went straight to Chick-fil-A and I got the biggest thing of nuggets and large fry! LOL :-)
